Piano accompaniment backing tracks
Claude Debussy wrote his cello sonata in 1915, one of the last pieces the composer wrote. The sonata is just over ten minutes in length, and makes use of modes and pentatonic scales which Debussy was fond of. The sonata uses many advanced cello techniques, and is an extremely effective performance piece when played by experienced soloists. The first movement is influenced by music of the early eighteenth century, and the last two movements are played without a break.
These piano accompaniment tracks help make practising more effective and enjoyable! They are recorded by a professional accompanist and can help you keep in tune and in time, as you listen to the piano part for this work. Many customers have found them a cost-effective alternative to hiring a pianist in the early stages of learning a new piece, whether that be for an exam, recital, audition or simply for fun! Please scroll down for samples and details of each movement.
4 crotchet click-beats at beginning indicate pulse before piece starts. At the start of bar 1, a single click-beat sounds before the cello enters.
